ZapSibNeftekhim involves construction of a facility (including respective off-sites) near Tobolsk to carry out deep hydrocarbon processing into polyolefins. The project's design capacity is 2 mtpa. The facility will incorporate:
ZapSibNeftekhim is a part of the Tobolsk production site comprising Tobolsk-Neftekhim and Tobolsk-Polymer, plants already on stream.
The feedstock (8 mtpa of NGL) is to come through the Yuzhny Balyk – Tobolsk pipeline. It will flow directly into a distillation deethaniser which ensures separation of constituent fractions. Specifically for the project, Tobolsk-Neftekhim's gas fractionation capacity has been significantly expanded, an NGL pipeline between the Purovsky Gas Condensate Processing Plant and Tobolsk-Neftekhim constructed, and throughput of the non-public Denisovka station of the Sverdlov Railway doubled. The project is being run by OOO ZapSibNeftekhim, SIBUR's wholly owned subsidiary.
